How can a family foundation or donor advised fund maintain the long-term focus – and patience – needed to achieve real results in international philanthropy? How can families just getting started in international philanthropy make the most difference, even with small grants, and what are the rules and regulations guiding this work? This timely and provocative call featured Karen Ansara, co-founder of the Ansara Family Fund, a leading investor in the rebuilding process in Haiti, and Rob Buchanan, president of the El-Hibri Charitable Foundation and former managing director of international programs for the Council on Foundations. Family philanthropists are invited to join the discussion and share their own perspectives on this difficult but vital work.
